...a newsy, hip channel with Mr. Gore at the helm as chairman of the board. Doomed I tells ya doomed!
The news channel is purchased sucked hardcore as it was. I caught it a few times at 4:30 am flipping through the 400+ channels I have.
When is Gore just gonna wake up and realize he is totally irrelevant?

I hope Al Bore is on himself late at night. I can watch him in bed and be out like a light within minutes. Save on sleeping pills with the human valium blathering away, probably still going on about lockboxes.
